Unformatted text preview: at the telomeres (ends) of human chromosomes Probes for 6 different genes on chromosome 12 Chromosome painting A mixture of probes for genes known to map on only one chromosome 8 Spectral Karyotyping (SKY) Easy to see rearrangments 9 With FISH diagnoses are simpler Loss of an oncogene in a cancer cell (top two, loss of one of the two orange (abl) genes Sex typing - Y chromosome is red, X is green - blue is autosomal marker 10 Trisomy 21 - Downs Syndrome One of the only viable trisomies is easily diagnosed with FISH 11 With FISH diagnoses are simpler! Cell probed, at metaphase (why?) with a chromosome 21 painting mixture of probes 13 Translocation is easy to diagnose with chromosomal painting 14 S pectral K arY otype (SKY) provides a “bar code” to find smaller rearrangements 15...
